Why do employees get made Redundant?
Redundancy can occur if there is workplace closure or simply if there is a reduced requirement for employees to carry out work of a particular kind.
Redundancy is a fair reason for dismissal if it is the real reason. Of paramount importance here is the process and procedure. Specific timescales must be adhered to if more than 20 employees are at risk.
If under 20 employees are at risk employers must still follow a process that will involve a period of consultation and seeking out alternatives to redundancy. Employers may also offer trial periods of any alternative roles.
As with unfair dismissal, the failure to follow a proper and legitimate procedure can render a genuine redundancy dismissal unfair.
The team can provide you with a suite of documents and related guidance as to how to carry out a redundancy process in accordance with current expected standards.
We work with you to tailor the documents to the particular circumstances and also to ensure that your communications protect your business but also reflect the tone you want to take with your employees.
Redundancy can be a very upsetting time for both parties and handled properly it need not always end in a dispute.

Marie was recommended to by a friend – and she did not disappoint. Great client service from the whole team, very practical and pragmatic advice and a happy client at the end of it!
Thank you, all. Highly recommend for employment law advice.
I’d like to take the opportunity to say a big thank you to Andy Boyde for helping me with my employment issue. For someone who was in a difficult situation his knowledge and expertise helped guide me through the process. He always provided quick responses and was readily available to provide expert advice whenever I needed it. I was impressed with the knowledge and professionalism shown and would recommend him if you are ever in a complicated employment situation.
Patient & Understanding
I spoke with Victoria Horner who gave me not only patience and understanding, but excellent legal advice that left me feeling confident. I would definitely recommend Victoria and Consilia Legal.
